Online Radio Station Rockwired.com Movesforward With It's Plans To Launch A Weekly Jazz Series Entitled "Jazzed And Blue: Profiles In Blues And Jazz"
Online PR News – 15-May-2011 – – (May 11, 2011 – Albuquerque, NM) With the daily online radio show Rockwired Radio Profiles continuing to shine a light on indie music from throughout the U.S. and abroad and the weekly show Aboriginal Sounds’ coverage of contemporary Native music, Rockwired.com has been keeping busy. Now, the online radio station will be launching a new weekly online radio series entitled Jazzed and Blue: Profiles in Blues and Jazz. This new show is tentatively scheduled for June/July 2011, every Sunday at exclusively at Rockwired.com.
The decision to bring this show to life wasn’t made simply to do another show. The decision was inspired by friendship. “Back in 2005, when Rockwired.com was a fledgling website and I was doing weekly radio show in Anaheim, California, I had all of these ideas for the kind of music and artists that I would feature.” says Brian Lush of Rockwired Media LLC “However, some of the first people that reached out to Rockwired introduced me to jazz music and because of this, I always view the early years of Rockwired as my education in jazz. The websites’ evolution from online magazine to online radio station and the direction that our two shows have taken, it has been difficult to fit jazz music into our programming. With Jazzed and Blue, we can highlight this vibrant music once again and I get a chance to work with dear old friends again!”
Rockwired.com is no stranger to covering jazz music. Its extensive musical reportage has featured exclusive interviews with Dee Dee Bridgewater, The Bad Plus, Bethany Yarrow, Kellylee Evans, China Forbes of Pink Martini, Earl R. Johnson, Jr., Alyssa Graham, Luba Mason, Luciana Souza, Lisa Hilton, Margo Reymundo, Melody Gardot, Marilyn Scott, Susan Krebs and Simone (daughter of Nina Simone).
“In a way, jazz music kind of got Rockwired its start and I would love to continue the journey that this music has brought us on.” says Lush. “I think that Jazzed and Blue will be an exciting addition to Rockwired.com and that we will be able to continue with our tradition of diversity in music.” (Continued)
